Full Review:

We previously travelled on this ship in 2003 as Airtours 'Sunbird'. It is obvious that in the intervening years, the ship has become aged and in need of re-furbishment. To new travellers, she would look good, but to us, she is definately looking the worse for wear. Our previous experiences on board cruises have been good, much of it down to the crew, who tended to be mostly from the Philippines, but many of this crew were Eastern European and a lot less friendly. Cruises are expected to be 'something special' but we certainly didn't feel that way onboard Destiny, certainly not warranting the extra cost of a cruising holiday.

Cruise Positives:
Side decks where sunbeds made it possible to be in the shade

Cruise Negatives:
The general condition of the ship.
